CBN Asia, the producers of The 700 Club Asia and Superbook, will be airing inspirational stories for this Lenten Season. Their Holy Week Specials, Tanikala, are meant to provide hope to millions of Filipinos especially during this time of community quarantine.
Award-winning actress, television host, and producer Coney Reyes will once again grace your television screens as Wanda on the rerun of CBN Asia’s Holy Week special, “Wanda’s Wonderful World,” this Maundy Thursday, April 9, 5:30 p.m. on GMA.
Written and directed by CBN Asia’s Special Projects Manager Icko Gonzalez, and co-starring Tirso Cruz III and Ricky Davao, Coney breathes life to the character of Wanda, the CEO of a well-renowned events company, Wanda’s Wonderful World. Despite her successful career, Wanda still searches for love as she tries to fill the void in her heart left by a traumatic experience she had when she was young.
Following its run last Lent, the faith-based feature film earned the respect of international movie critics and enthusiasts, winning Best Special Effects in a Narrative Feature, Best Experimental/Most Creative in a Narrative Feature, and Best Lighting in a Narrative Feature awards at the Great Lakes Christian Film Festival 2019 in Buffalo, New York.
